Oh noes. Here comes the first report of a hotel completely sealed off because a guest staying there has been diagnosed with swine flu. Seriously. An entire hotel is under quarantine for seven days.

BBC News reports:

About 300 people at a Hong Kong hotel have been placed under quarantine after a guest there became China's first confirmed swine flu case.

The 25-year-old man, who is now in hospital after testing positive for the virus, had travelled from Mexico via Shanghai, Hong Kong's leader said. Local TV footage showed police wearing masks guarding the hotel exits.

Guh. Can you even imagine being sealed up in your hotel for seven days? Talk about hotel hell.

The Mexican man who was diagnosed with the virus sought treatment at a hospital on Thursday evening, and his hotel — The Metropark Hotel — is now under a seven-day quarantine, and Tamiflu had been given to the 200 guests and 100 staff inside.

Livestock must be abolished

Concentration camps for living creatures is never a good thing. This case is another proof.

It is time to leave out the meat and other animal products. Check out websites like http://www.MeatAlternatives.org  and see how many options (healthier ones) we humans have.

Right now, we are slaughtering our only plant. Let's wake up before it will be too late.
